Grapefruit With Chile And Rosemary

Grapefruit With Chile and Rosemary

Grapefruit was one of those fruits I did not like as I was growing up.  To me, it was bitter and there was no enough sugar in the world to make it taste better.  The years have changed my taste buds.

Today, I love the delicious red grapefruits.  Usually, I just eat them plain. The January issue of Bon Appetit had a great recipe for grapefruit.  Half of a grapefruit is sprinkled with raw sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, and chopped fresh rosemary.
The taste was wonderful.   It was sweet with a slight spiciness from the chili flakes mixed with a citrus pungent flavor.  A perfect start to breakfast.   Enjoy:)

Grapefruit With Chile And Rosemary
From Bon Appetit


1 red or pink grapefruit
2 teaspoons raw sugar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


Cut grapefruit in half; using a small knife, cut along membranes to release segments.  Dividing evenly, sprinkle grapefruit halves with sugar, red pepper flakes, and rosemary.

Makes 2 servings


  1. Uh, yes! This looks absolutely delicious.

  2. I use to put a ton of sugar on my grapefruit when I was a kid, Geraldine. Thank goodness I have since curbed that habit:) Citrus fruit in the winter time always cheers me up. I love this recipe! I'm pinning it! Thank you so much for sharing, Geraldine...
